The government is seeking evidence relating to the personal injury discount rate.

When the Civil Liability Bill is enacted it will change the way the personal injury discount rate is set. Responses to the call for evidence will help the Lord Chancellor in carrying out the first review of the rate under the new legislation.

The consultation closes on 30 January 2019.

The call for evidence seeks up-to-date data and information on a wide range of topics relevant to the setting of the personal injury discount rate under the provisions of the Civil Liability Bill, including:

  • investments available to claimants
  • investment advice provided to claimants
  • investments made by claimants
  • model investment portfolios.
